Q: I tried to flash the ROM and got this:
Installing update... set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed E:Error in /sdcard/..path od ROM.zip (Status 7) Installation aborted.
A: Update your recovery to supported one. See the list below.
- TWRP 126.96.36.199 ACE or newer
Q: I've used HTC Dev unlock and flashed the rom but it won't boot. What should I do?
A: You need to extract boot.img from the zip and flash it via fastboot. If you don't have fastboot executable anymore from flashing recovery, install Android SDK platform tools (Linux users should find it from distro's package management) and then reboot to bootloader, open command prompt and navigate to the location you extracted your boot.img and type:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
